These last few days I’ve been embroidering a lot. I find immense pleasure in it, the detail of those small stitches, the possibility of being terribly perfectionist (which I am) and that not being a problem. The beauty of not having to be a perfectionist and the result still being visually pleasant.

Done! A third one is already flying south. It will be a surprise! #babyblanket #embroidery #abbrigate

Done! #babyblanket #embroidery #heart #abbrigate

The photos above show two of the three blankets I made these last few days for abbrigate*. Each of them is a labor of love, dedicated to the sweet beginnings in people’s lives.

Unrelated, or maybe not: there is an upcoming trip to Orlando and San Francisco. Any tips? Fabric, yarn and art supplies stores you recommend?
